Center for Teaching and Learning

International Teaching Assistant Program

CTL’s International Teaching Assistant (ITA) Program is designed to help support newly appointed TAs who are not native speakers of English.

The program has two parts:

  1. The ITA Program workshops at the Annual TA/RA Conference on Teaching, Learning, and Research in September
  2. Ongoing individual consultations as requested by the TA and/or by the TA’s department

Conference workshops and individual consultations focus on a variety of topics related to teaching effectively at UW and communicating clearly in English.
